to be had. but, what i think the american people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and, i don't have another election. and you know, michelle and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to -- to be put in this position. and there are people all across the country, millions of folks who have worked so hard to help us get elected. but there are also millions of people that may not have voted for us and are also counting on us. we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and -- i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. jonathan karl? >> thank you, mr. president. of senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said they want watergate style hearings on the attack in benghazi. they said if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything they can to block her nomination. i would like your reaction to that. would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> i'm not
taking a look at the election numbers and examining a voter turnout and demographics impact of those results. panelists include ron bernstein, and david wasserman, house editor for "the cook political report." our live coverage now here on c-span3. >> [inaudible conversations] >> okay, folks, why don't we go ahead and start. and we are live on c-span3 this brings everybody should behave, if they can to especially the panelists. minus dan glickman. i'm a senior fellow here at the bipartisan policy center, recognize my former colleague in the house who came in, and so john, my colleague john fortier will introduce the panelists but i decided this morning taking a cue after both moses and david letterman i would ask the 10 questions that i would ask about this election, and not in any particular order, or in any priority but as i thought about the election, these were the questions, and they really do both a congressional in presidential races. one, the republicans to push lacking in the senate. was a case of good democratic candidates, bad republican candidates, or the message or the m
these developments has been managed, and if so, to what purpose. today two days after the president's election, we learned that two iranian fighter jets, like this one, attacked one of our unmanned an unarmed predator drones. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we learned that boeing will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cut more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like this it offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the electi
democratic congressman jay innsly has been elected. i'm joined by goldie tailor. lou mckroi, former advisor of mitt romney's health care group. tana, ozzie coats and lorella. she came to the united states as an undocumented immigrant when she was ten years old. >>> late tuesday night barack obama was re-elected to a second term as president of the united states. his victory was at the same time narrow and decisive. it was not just a victory for the president but a truly historic night for liberalism across the country. colorado legalized marijuana. maine, washington and maryland legalized gay marriage. the 113th congress will include the most female members ever and for the first time in history, women and minorities will hold a majority of the democratic party's house seats. in his victory speech president obama vowed to continue the work he began in his first term. >> america, i believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. i believe we can keep the promise of our founders. the idea that if you
can find the common ground necessary. bill: that's the same potion had the weekend before the election. meanwhile there are strong warning the fiscal cliff could have dire consequences. lay out the stakes here. what are they? >> according to the congressional budget office, the bean counters in congress, they say recession. if you cut spending and raise taxes as is planned january 1 you get a recession and a 1.9% -- you get a 9.1% unemployment rate next year. the republicans are saying do not raise tax rates. the democrats are saying, president obama and harry reid are saying tax the rich, raise tax rates. this is all about tax rates. the democrats led by president obama and harry reid, president obama will speak later today. their firm position for many years has been tax the rich. bill: what boehner is arguing you can find other sources of revenue by reforming the tax system. what does boehner get if he cuts a deal. >> if he cuts a deal and agrees to some kind of compromise where we do raise tax rates on the rich. there are two things may get in return. more spending cuts. at least t
sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> romney says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still ha
the american people want us to do. that was the very clear message from the election last week. that was message of a letter i received over the weekend. it came from a man in tennessee who began by writing that he didn't vote for me. which is ok. but what he said was, even though he didn't give me his vote, he's giving me his support to move this country forward. and he said the same to his republican representatives in washington. he said that he'll back each of us regardless of party as long as we work together to make life better for all of us. he made it clear that if we don't make enough progress he'll be back in touch. so my hope, he wrote, is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles, special interest groups and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our differences aside. i couldn't say it better myself. that's precisely what i intend to do. with that, let me open it up for your questions. i'm going to start off with ben of a.p. >> thank you, mr. president. can you assure the american people that there have been no brea
's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in the open and on the table. you know what, think about this. the president could have said, you know, i don't want to do that. i think i'm going to cave in today. he don't have to worry about anything. he's not up for re-election. he played with heart today. this is the guy you voted for. this is the guy who said all tloong that he would fight for the middle class and that is exactly what he's doing first press confere
the parliamentary election people assumed that there was prince reply -- support in groups. they did. they controlled most of the policies. well, wip a few months, what do we have? we have even though 46% turned out for that election, remarkably, and the muslim brotherhood has been good in turning out people. their candidates get only 1/4 of the vote. then if you have the final round , the two plrks it was so close we didn't know the results. so egypt is divided somewhat. the brotherhood after the parliamentary election, they have carte plan much, but they discovered they don't. they have been sending in pressure from the right. the writing of these institutions. today, as we speak, in tahrir square there are smowsu thousands of people demonstrating. going for essentially more specific reference to the sharia religious law in the constitution where there is a deal where more moderates are -- some of the liberals. it is a work in progress. the constitutional issue is the most important issue they are facing, even more than the economy. >> we welcome mark lynch from george washington u
conference since being re-elected, president obama, with rhetoric sometimes reminiscent of his tax-the-rich campaign mantra, he appeared to dig in his heels on extending tax cuts for the wealthiest americans. take a listen. >> there is a package to be shaped. and i'm confident that parties -- folks of good will in both parties can make that happen, but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> all right. i don't know about you, but to me, that sounds like a fairly staunch and unwavering position. and yet, the president did insist he's staying open to new ideas. take a listen to this one. >> i am open to new ideas, if the republican counterparts or some democrats have a great idea for us to raise revenue, maintain progressivity, make sure the middle class isn't getting hit, reduces our deficit, encourages growth, i'm not going to just slam the door in their face. i want to hear -- i want to hear ideas from everybody. >> all right. now, that second
people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and, i don't have another election. and you know, michelle and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to -- to be put in this position. and there are people all across the country, millions of folks who have worked so hard to help us get elected. but there are also millions of people that may not have voted for us and are also counting on us. we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and -- i hope and intend to be an even better president in the second term than i was in the first. jonathan karl? >> thank you, mr. president. of senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said they want watergate style hearings on the attack in benghazi. they said if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything they can to block her nomination. i would like your reaction to that. would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> i'm not going to comment at this point on -- v
matthews back in washington. let me start with this. think a second, think if this election had gone the other way. john boldin, not susan rice, would be the hot talk for secretary of state. war clouds would be overhead and the bugles blaring would be marching to iran. just think self-deportation would be the name of the game for immigration. voter suppression would be the toast of the town, or certain parts of town. the extinction of health care would be hr-1, up there on the front burner for congressional action. just think, if the election had gone the other way the rich would be basking in the best tax protection known to man, a real-life, genuine mandate to leave them and their money alone. but a funny thing happened on the way to the white house. people voted for tax fairness. they voted to make the rich pay their share, specifically voted that way for one thing because the republicans kept warning them not to. and so it came to pass today that president obama said just that at his press conference. give the middle class their tax cuts, speaker boehner. cut it loose so they can
with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well, that's a great question and i think a lot of those questions will be thrown at the white house, and they have already, i can assure you. the fbi, obviously, if there was an investigation going on would have known about this, the white house would have known about this. but there's not always necessarily a reason to make a change. if there is an investigation and anything serious that they feel like they need the opportunity to follow up on, there's a chance that moves wouldn't have been made. but the timing of it, obviously, with the election coming up is very curious. >> and there are some who say that the benghazi hearings are next week, following up on the attack at the consulate in libya. >> reporter: that's right. >> there are concerns that maybe this is a conspiracy, that this was timed perfectly to get the cia director out before that. any reporting on that? >> reporter: well, there are a lot of conspiracies i
and the drone landed safely soon after at an undisclosed election. the iranian jets pursued the drone after firing the shots according to george little, pentagon spokesman. >> it was conducting routine surveillance was intercepted by iranian aircraft and fired upon. with guns. this occurred over international waters approximately 15 nautical miles off the iran coastline. it was not hit. >> the predator was operating in international waters 16 miley ms off the iran coast, near the persian gulf. 12 miles remitting international airspace. when asked why this was not revealed before in the days before the u.s. election he said the predator was on a "classified mission" adding the united states reached out by the state department and the swiss protective powers. when asked if it should be considered an act of war, george little would not get into legal characterizations of the event. >>shepard: for more reaction to the latest act of aggression from iran we will speak with a former intelligence officer coming up next. and syria's president bashar al-assad's defiant message about his future.

and this is "viewpoint." it's amazing what getting re-elected can do for a politician. even the president of the united states. it was a confident and combative president obama who strode to the white house lecturn today for his first press conference since winning his second term. at the top of his agenda, a first step towards saving the country's economy were dropping off the so-called fiscal cliff which one of our guest tonight more aptly calls the austerity bomb. >> pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on, and that's to keep the middle class taxes low. >> eliot: the president also emphasized what he would not do a sending time to make a tax deal with house republicans. >> obama: what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> eliot: mr. obama also waded into the scandal that saw
expressing sour grapes after an election loss. why is this different? >> because every intelligence agency in the world, including the british, believe that iraq had weapons of mass destruction, that it was an entirely different situation. four americans died that didn't have to die. >> is there a blurring of the line here? especially when it comes to the president and senator mccain? a lot of people would like look at the condi rice situation and the tens of thousands of lives, a combination of military and civilian lives that have been lost based on faulty information. >> i think it's easy to make the assumption that there's more politics on the side. most people that know john mccain, and i consider him a friend, he would say he's a patriot. he wants to know the truth. this is about what he just said. it's about four people died in benghazi that didn't have to. i think senator mccain is doing his job along with senator graham to get to the bottom and the best the way they know how. and i fully support their actions and their words. >> but they're making this -- they're talking about wat
dense the affair surfaces right after the election, not before but right after and before the intelligence chiefs go to capitol hill to get grilled. as an old intelligence analyst, and i could be totally wrong this is my interpretation, the administration was unhappy with general petraeus not playing ball 100 percent on their party line story. he was getting cold feet aboutiving under oath and i suspect these tough chicago guys knew of the affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. i don't like conspiracy theories and i could be wrong but the timing this, again, right after the election and right before he is supposed to get grilled on capitol hill, it smells. maybe it is coincidence but let me allay your concerns on one count. our nation has -- is not going to be suddenly vulnerable. and the deputy director will fill in, unless obama administration decides to appoint a political hack which could be the case they may want a politically reliable guy to get them through benghazi. >>neil: you talk about the benghazi hearings, couldn't
much for putting the election behind us. as president obama publicly ponders what kind of help mitt romney could offer his team going forward, romney unloads to donors and why he thinks he lost. >>> and if one presidential rival isn't enough, the president butts heads with his 2008 opponent. delivering a tough message to senator mccain over congressional criticism for u.n. ambassador susan rice. >>> also, this morning, violence grows as israel and hamas look to be on the brink of war. we'll have the latest report on the ground. good morning from washington. it's thursday, november 15th 2012. this is "the daly rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get first to my first reads. president obama wanted to spend his first post election press conference showing he was ready to reach across the aisle. instead, he found himself on the receiving end of criticisms from not one, but two former presidential rivals. the president himself was loose, confident and at times aggressive trying to show he's in charge of these budget investigations. also to appear magazine 1/2 muss. magnanimous. he pledged to
of questions at his first press conference since winning re-election. in the east room of the white house, the president took to the podium to press his agenda for the next four years. quickly dispatching a first question on the petraeus affair, saying he had no evidence any classified information was disclosed. then it was on to dismiss concerns that he could cave again on tax cuts for the rich with the impending fiscal cliff. >> what i said at the time is what i meant. which is, this was a one-time proposition. what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president expressed confidence and urged action in reaching a deal to avoid the sudden increase of taxes and the imposition of spending cuts in january. but he reiterated time and again that he will not balance the budget on the backs of the middle class. saying that the election proved that the american people are behind him. >> when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, r
